The article focuses on a comparison of attitudes towards migration based on data from the European Social Survey 2002. It looks at the question of whether attitudes towards immigrants are related to the numbers and structure of immigrants in country. Three thematic areas of attitudes towards migration are examined: 1) the host population’s willingness to accept immigrants; 2) perceptions of the impact of immigration on the host country; 3) attitudes towards different forms of integration of immigrants. The findings indicate the Europeans are more willing to accept migrants that are of the same race and from Europe than they are migrants of different race and from states outside Europe. The strongest unwillingness to accept people from other states and the strongest emphasis on the negative impact was observed in Greece and Hungary, while the strongest willingness to accept immigrants was found in Sweden and Switzerland and was connected with more positive perception of the impact of immigration.
